Why does Seiko recommend servicing your watch about every three years?
Seiko watches are designed to provide accurate and reliable service over a long period. However, like any sensitive precision instrument, a watch needs periodic servicing to ensure that it functions perfectly. Frequency of such work depends on the climate and the owner’s individual care of the
watch, but in general, we recommend having your watch serviced about every three years at an Authorized Seiko Service Center.
Worn out movement parts and aged oil inside the movement may cause a watch to lose time or stop. Therefore, our technical specialists will inspect the watch for any worn out parts that need repair or replacement, and the disassembled parts will be cleaned and oiled again. Furthermore, a watch’s water resistance is not permanently guaranteed. It is affected by the ageing of gaskets or deformation of watch parts due to an accidental shock. Since deterioration of gaskets can cause rust or moisture inside the movement, we recommend that you have the water resistance of the watch checked regularly to ensure it’s functionality.
